Teensy Prop Shield LC

This low-cost (LC) Teensy Prop Shield is meant for making light and sound effects on small, handheld props and wearable costumes. This shield features a 2W audio amp, high-speed 5V buffers for driving APA102 LEDs, and an 8MB flash memory. This economical board is approximately the size of a Teensy, just slightly longer to allow space for mounting holes and connections for power, speaker and LEDs.

This lower-cost Prop Shield is identical to the standard Prop Shield, except the motion sensors are removed. Keep in mind that this shield can be used with the Teensy 3.2 and is not restricted to use only with other “LC” models.

The Teensy Prop Shield has been equipped with a slew of neat features. Need an amplifier? The Teensy Prop Shield has one rated at 2W and is capable of driving 4 or 8 Ohm speakers. Additionally the Prop Shield has 5V buffers meant to send data to Dotstar or APA102 type addressable LEDs. It also has an onboard 8MB flash memory, meant for storing sound clips and images, logging data and many other uses.

  • Audio Amplifier – Clear quality audio output to a small speaker
  • Fast LED Driver – Drive APA102 / Dotstar LEDs for colorful lighting with rapid response

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

2 Programming

Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
